Trying to update

I sat down tonight to try to write a new post.  However, for some reason, my laptop is being a pain and keeps freezing up.  So unfortunately I won't be posting tonight.  However, I've learned that even in the seemingly mundane, God always has a plan and a reason.  I will attempt it again hopefully tomorrow night.  But in the meantime I leave you with these verses: to hopefully encourage you:

Habakkuk 3:17-18 (which tonight seems appropriate and I would like to add "though your computer decides to have a mind of its own"...and, yes, I'm trying to be joyful)
"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior."

From Lamentations 3 (The Message)
"...I keep a grip on hope...God's loyal love couldn't have run out, his merciful love couldn't have dried up.  They're created new every morning.  How great your faithfulness!  I'm sticking with God (I say it over and over).  He's all I've got left.  God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks.  It's a good thing to quietly hope, quietly hope for help from God...Wait for hope to appear."

Jeremiah 32:3 (The Message)
"Call to me and I will answer you.  I'll tell you marvelous and wonderful things that you could never figure out on your own."
